Fox CTD & iCD Product Introduction Videos

Components Forks Video

Suspension technology can be daunting these days. We have adjustable front, rear and now seatposts. We caught up with Fox’s Mark Jordan and he said Fox’s best asset is how easy it is to understand and to use.  They system is smart and well-designed so using it is simple and natural. Mark explains:

“The best thing about iCD is how easy it is to use and how quickly it adjusts the suspension on-the-fly to increase efficiency and control on the trail. Kabush says it well, “I use it seconds at a time as the terrain changes. It is so quick to adapt to really maximize my suspension. It gets me to the finish line quicker and that’s what counts.”

CTD is easy for most riders to understand but some people need a little reassurance that they are using it correctly. We want riders to know that they can use it as much or as little as they want and that they don’t have to exactly match the Climb, Trail and Descend modes with the terrain features. For example, it is okay to be in Trail mode on a technical climb. And it’s okay to be in Trail mode on a flowing downhill. The three CTD modes are designed to make it easy for the rider to adapt the suspension to the terrain. Also, Trail mode works really well for riders that just want to set it and forget it.”

Official Fox CTD & iCD Info

FOX, the industry-leading ride dynamics company, has releases two product overview videos about their CTD and iCD suspension systems. The videos cover the important features of each system and will help customers understand how the adjustments apply to them on the trail.

CTD is FOX’s suspension system that takes the guesswork out of getting the fork and shock set up to work in harmony. CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend modes. FOX technician, Nick Delauder, takes viewers through these terrain modes and discusses how riders can match their suspension settings on-the-fly to varying conditions and riding styles.

The CTD and iCD videos provide an overview about key technologies featured in FOX’s 2013 product lineup to increase awareness and education.

In addition to the videos, FOX has also released an in-depth look at the CTD system in a document titled CTD Explained. The document describes the Climb, Trail, and Descend modes and how riders can access them on-the-fly or just leave the adjuster in Trail mode for all around performance.

CTD Explained

CTD is our new suspension system that takes the guesswork out of getting your fork and shock set up to work in harmony. When you’re out on a ride, CTD allows for total control of the terrain.

CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend modes. These terrain modes are identical between your fork and shock so you can match your suspension settings on-the-fly to varying conditions and riding styles.

The terrain mode system makes it easy to experiment with different settings and easily get back to your starting point with confidence.

If you like running one setting all of the time, set the fork and shock to Trail mode and go.

Riders can use these terrain modes as often as they please or just leave the adjuster in Trail mode for all around performance. Riders do not necessarily have to exactly match the CTD adjuster to the terrain features by name.

    The seatpost, really? I don’t think so. I know the video makes mention that you may use these modes outside of what the lever designates them as but then what is the point? If CTD was made to simplify things it sounds like it will just confuse buyers more. Most people are still trying to learn H/L compression and rebound.

    It’s so simple, Fox has to make multiple videos of the feature and create diagrams with lots of paragraphs. In the end, it takes the most foresight, design and planning, to make something simple. If you have to describe something to this great of length, it’s not simple enough.
